Love your work, but Iím sorry to say the Roger Waters "In The Flesh" standard-def DVD kills this one.

You can only do so much in the home-viewing concert environment.

It's very dependent on the entertainment value vis. the generic camera effects.

High Definition enhances this, but a successful home video presentation is still is hinged on the Entertainment, in the end.

In the end, the visual direction is not really a major issue with this release. It's the heavy-handed colour grading and over-use of diffusion that shouldn't have been applied. IMHO.

Yup, same here - the left front is dead in the 5.1 Tru HD mix. Stereo works fine, as does every other disc I have ...

Confirmed again on another setup, making it three different player/receiver combinations that do not pass a left channel in the TRU-HD mix.

How is it that with all the complaints about film grain & noise no one else noticed the missing left channel of audio? Google shows no hint of an issue anywhere and I can't believe there are no other viewers with TRU HD capability ...

I didn't remember any audio issues with my copy so I just went back and checked the disc... it's fine. I can confirm that I have all channels in TrueHD mode. FWIW, I'm bitstreaming via hdmi.

Thanks for the reply!

Just double checking what you're saying:

There are two audio tracks on the disc, a 3/2.1 Dolby Digital track and a LPCM 2 channel track. The Dolby Digital track is TrueHD, but will down-mix to a number of other formats including stereo and pro logic surround. The LPCM track will up-mix into fake THX surround etc.

On the receivers I tried, every possible combination of player/receiver option worked perfectly, except choosing the Dolby Digital 3/2.1 audio track with Dolby TrueHD active on the receiver (ie: receiver indicating a TrueHD signal)

All other surround modes worked fine, but TrueHD has no left channel, although it does have good imaging between the center and right channels ...

There DEFINITELY is a LEFT channel on the TrueHD track on the copy I have. By the way, this disc sounds awesome! I had it cranked up and it felt like I was really there.

thanks guys. we are now up to 3 systems that have the same problem = no left front channel from a dolby true hd bitstream.

again, here is my set up: panasonic dmp-bd30 blu ray player [updated w the latest firmware] connected to a brand new pioneer elite receiver via hdmi 1.3, with the player sending a pure dolby true hd bitstream to the receiver for decoding.

...not much more to add to that other than to say thanks.

i'll keep you posted re how i secure a replacement disc that works.

rgds, mark
